SCIP was founded in 1997 by Mr E P Mogale and Mr J D Booyens (snr). In October 2001, the company merged with Booyens & Koorn Consulting Engineers, a group of consulting engineers who had been in business since 1985 and who has wholeheartedly committed themselves to the BEE process.
This, in fact, was the driving force behind the merger, and has resulted in SCIP having become one of the only few fully black empowered companies that is also a specialist in the upgrading of national roads.
The success of SCIP over the last 9 years was mainly due to the combination of 20 years of civil engineering experience with a liberated socio-economic view.
SCIP has been nominated as both South Africa's Top Emerging Empowerment Company as well as Top Women Empowerment Company in the Consulting Engineering sector.
